Here are a few freebies that you need to have!
Firstly, Noisetrade have another offering well worth an e-mail address. We became aware of The Ludlow Thieves thanks to Debbie in New York who recommended them via their free EP – theirs is a grand American vision told with a rustic, dusty charm. It was described by Debbie as “sounds like U2 accompanied with an orchestra and Rod Stewart on two packs of smokes as the lead singer“. Download her choice from the EP, To Travel below, or grab the whole EP from Noisetrade here.

Secondly, Insound have their latest July digital mix available too (but only for a week or so) and while it is smaller than usual (six tracks), this sampler features from artists playing this year’s Hudson River Rocks Fest including Grimes, John Maus and Eternal Summers.

And lastly, American Songwriter also has a free July sampler available on Bandcamp that includes new MM faves Shovels & Rope, the Mystery Jets, Diamond Rugs, Cory Branan and plenty more.
